This delicious and nutritious raw pear apple tart recipe takes just 5 minutes to make, and is a unique spin on a familiar dessert. The crust uses waln
We are making something yummy, sweet and really healthy too - a raw pear apple tart! If you’re wondering what we mean by a ‘raw’ dessert - a raw tart just means that it doesn't need to be baked. In this gluten free apple tart recipe our crust will be made using a blend of walnuts and dates.
First, you will make the crust using a food processor. Place the walnuts and dates and a pinch of sea salt into the food processor and blend until the ingredients stick together. Dates are used in this recipe as they will help the crust stick together, and also add some natural sweetness to the tart.
Before placing the mixture into your pie pan, sprinkle a small amount of oat flour on the bottom of the pan. This will make it easier to cut and remove pieces of the pear apple tart when finished. Then, just dump the blended crust into the center of the pie pan and press the dough down for an even, tight coating on the bottom and sides of the pan.
Then you can move onto the filling. Place some pre sliced apples and pears into a bowl and add some oat flour. The flour adds some texture and heartiness to the fruit. Then add some lemon juice, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice to the sliced fruit and coat evenly.
Set this mixture aside to make your apple puree. Throw some additional sliced apples into the food processor and add some more maple syrup and lemon juice and pumpkin pie spice. Then, blend until the apple is nice and smooth. Pour the purée over the tart crust and spread evenly over the bottom.
Jenne likes using both the pure and whole slices in this pear apple tart recipe as it adds some texture and dimension, and makes the dessert more interesting. Once the puree is in the bottom, you can start to layer your coated apple and pear slices over top. Any configuration is fine, but Jenne likes to overlap the slices spiraling inward. This adds a nice colorful presentation to the tart.
If you've never tried making a raw dessert before, this raw pear apple tart is a great one to start with!
- 3 apples, peeled & cored
- 2 pears, sliced
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons sprouted oat flour (or old fashioned oats ground into a flour)
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- A dash sea salt
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 cups walnuts, soaked & dehydrated if possible
- 10 pitted dates, chopped
In a food processor add walnuts and blend until they‚Äôre all crumbled, about 10 seconds. Add chopped dates with a dash of sea salt and pulse to combine. Remove the lid and scoop out about two tablespoons of the mixture. With your hand form it into a ball, if it sticks together without crumbling apart then the crust is ready. If it crumbles, place it back into the processor, add a teaspoon of maple syrup or another date, and pulse again. Lightly cover the bottom of your pie plate with oat flour to prevent the crust from sticking too much. Remove the crust mixture from the food processor, form it into a large ball and place the ball in the center of the pie plate. Flatten the ball in the plate, covering the bottom as well as the edges to create the pie crust. Thinly slice 2 of the apples lengthwise creating very thin strips. Place the strips in a large bowl and toss with 1 ½ tablespoon of the lemon juice, oat flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt and maple syrup. Toss well to coat; careful to not break the apple strips. Puree the third apple by slicing and placing in food processor with a dash of pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Blend until a chunky applesauce consistency is reached. Pie assembly Now that your crust is ready, spread the pureed apple onto the bottom of the crust. Layer the sliced apples and pears on top of the puree creating a spiral of apples. Start near the edge of the crust and work your way around and into the center so that all of the apples have been laid into the crust. Enjoy immediately or allow the pie to sit for a couple of hours. The latter is recommended because the filling will have a chance to soften and take on the flavors of the spices even more; that is, if you can wait. If you have a dehydrator, place the pie in the dehydrator at 105º for 2 hours then enjoy! Serves 6-8

00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:02.212
00:00:02.212 --> 00:00:04.400
Hi, you are watching Gluten-free Tasty.
00:00:04.400 --> 00:00:05.560
I'm Janae Claiborne.
00:00:05.560 --> 00:00:08.660
And today we are in the kitchen making
something yummy and
00:00:08.660 --> 00:00:12.000
sweet and really healthy too.
00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:14.160
A raw apple pear tart.
00:00:14.160 --> 00:00:16.050
I know it sounds interesting.
00:00:16.050 --> 00:00:18.280
A raw tart or a raw pie.
00:00:18.280 --> 00:00:20.970
But it actually can be done, and we're
going to show you how.
00:00:20.970 --> 00:00:25.720
The crust of our pie is going to be
walnuts and dates.
00:00:25.720 --> 00:00:27.510
So, we're gonna have to blend that up.
00:00:27.510 --> 00:00:30.410
So you're gonna put your walnuts into the
00:00:30.410 --> 00:00:32.190
Here I have some dates.
00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:35.930
We're using dates because they're gonna
hold our crust together, and
00:00:35.930 --> 00:00:38.580
also, they will be our sweetener.
00:00:38.580 --> 00:00:40.830
So let's put those right in.
00:00:40.830 --> 00:00:42.600
Also gonna add a pinch of sea salt.
00:00:44.360 --> 00:00:46.370
Always got to add a little salt to the
00:00:46.370 --> 00:00:49.030
We're gonna blend this up until it holds
00:00:49.030 --> 00:00:53.122
[SOUND] So, before we add that to our pie
00:00:53.122 --> 00:00:57.767
I just wanna sprinkle some oat flour to
00:00:57.767 --> 00:01:00.754
And this will just make it easier for us
to cut it and
00:01:00.754 --> 00:01:03.270
make sure that it actually comes out.
00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:10.230
Now, we can just dump your crust into the
center of your pie pan.
00:01:10.230 --> 00:01:17.120
So I'm gonna press the dough into my pie
dish, making sure that it's pretty solid
00:01:17.120 --> 00:01:22.130
because, again, this is gonna be the
bottom and the sides of the pie.
00:01:22.130 --> 00:01:24.310
When you get to the corners of the pie
00:01:24.310 --> 00:01:28.210
just make sure that you kind of create a
ridge, so that you actually have sides.
00:01:28.210 --> 00:01:31.180
You wanna press it really tightly so that
it doesn't crumble and
00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:32.700
actually stays together.
00:01:34.870 --> 00:01:37.338
And when I get to the sides, I like to use
00:01:37.338 --> 00:01:45.540
Pressing my left hand towards the side,
and then my thumb to make a little edge.
00:01:45.540 --> 00:01:47.380
So, that's our crust.
00:01:47.380 --> 00:01:50.310
Now we can move on to the filling.
00:01:50.310 --> 00:01:53.670
I have some apples here, and I have some
pears as well.
00:01:53.670 --> 00:01:54.600
Just toss that in.
00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:57.780
And the apple.
00:01:57.780 --> 00:02:01.130
Half of the apple I'm gonna puree to be
the bottom of it, so
00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:03.450
I'm gonna save a good amount.
00:02:03.450 --> 00:02:05.240
So, there's our apple, there's our pear.
00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:08.010
I'm gonna add some more of that oat flour.
00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:11.000
Adds a little bit more texture so
00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:15.380
it's not just raw fruit, it's got a little
bit more hardiness to it, as well.
00:02:16.510 --> 00:02:19.670
Some lemon juice, to prevent it from
00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:25.270
Some maple syrup, to sweeten it up just a
00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:29.030
And, my favorite, pumpkin pie spice.
00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:30.990
00:02:30.990 --> 00:02:34.890
So you can just use your hand to give that
a toss, you want it to be nice and
00:02:34.890 --> 00:02:36.540
coated with everything.
00:02:36.540 --> 00:02:39.380
So this can set aside while I make the
00:02:39.380 --> 00:02:42.535
Here, I have my little food processor.
00:02:42.535 --> 00:02:44.810
Throw the apples directly into that.
00:02:44.810 --> 00:02:48.090
And I'm going to add some more of that
00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:52.760
And a little bit more lemon juice, just a
tad, just a little squeeze.
00:02:52.760 --> 00:02:54.820
And more of that pumpkin pie spice, too.
00:02:54.820 --> 00:02:57.511
And just blend it up until it's nice and
00:02:57.511 --> 00:03:00.598
00:03:00.598 --> 00:03:01.590
00:03:01.590 --> 00:03:05.860
So let's pour our puree into our crust.
00:03:05.860 --> 00:03:07.570
It smells really good.
00:03:07.570 --> 00:03:09.940
Just spread it out on the bottom.
00:03:09.940 --> 00:03:13.300
And I like to do a puree and add the
00:03:13.300 --> 00:03:17.380
because it just adds more texture and it
makes it more interesting.
00:03:17.380 --> 00:03:20.850
All right, now we can actually layer our
00:03:20.850 --> 00:03:23.690
our pears right into our pie as well.
00:03:23.690 --> 00:03:27.645
Any configuration you like, but what I
usually like to do is lay them so
00:03:27.645 --> 00:03:31.199
that they're overlapping each other around
the outside until
00:03:31.199 --> 00:03:34.380
you've reached the center, spiraling
00:03:34.380 --> 00:03:37.320
You can interchange your apples and your
00:03:37.320 --> 00:03:40.620
And it makes it so interesting because my
pears have green skin and
00:03:40.620 --> 00:03:46.010
my apples have red, so it, oh, I think it
looks a little, a little cooler.
00:03:46.010 --> 00:03:49.070
I finished laying out my apples and my
00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:52.550
I cut myself a slice, and now I get to
00:03:52.550 --> 00:03:54.910
And I'm sure it's gonna be delicious.
00:03:54.910 --> 00:03:56.528
00:03:56.528 --> 00:03:59.740
00:03:59.740 --> 00:04:02.120
Mm, it's very good.
00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:04.560
Mm, so good.
00:04:04.560 --> 00:04:06.550
If you've never made a raw dessert before,
00:04:06.550 --> 00:04:09.090
I think this one is a great one to start
00:04:09.090 --> 00:04:12.980
It's super easy to make, and it's even
easier to devour.
00:04:12.980 --> 00:04:14.980
